I found something similar at the Dollar store back in 2011. They are similar to a shoe organizer, but with fewer pockets. I bought 2 and I think they held the equivalent of 1 large shoe organizer.
Another alternative to using the over the door hanger or the much needed bathroom hooks( we need those for wet towels), is a large diameter suction cup hook, specifically a power lock suction hook. ( these work by pulling up then down on the hook, then to release you pull the hook back up.)
We used these on the Wonder and just recently at the Boardwalk Villas. They are very strong and will suction to smooth surfaces, including mirrors, windows, doors, wood paneling and painted walls too if they aren't too textured.
We have successfully used them to hold these organizers and heavy bags of laundry.
I found mine at a discount store but I recently saw them on amazon too.

I just try to seriously minimize my shoes I bring. Athletic, beach flipflop, fancy flipflop, flats. I don't need a door organizer or I may be tempted to bring more?

Speaking of which, I found adorable comfortable non slippy silver dressy shoes at Kmart of all places on sale yesterday for my next cruise! (That isn't booked yet haha. Told Twinkie, I bought shoes for our next cruise!) Gotta think ahead. Its hard to find cute fancy sleek n sultry that you actually can wear around with all the different kinds of flooring and walking on a ship! Woohoo. I be ready!

The shoe organziers are handy for much more than shoes. We use them for our cabins keys, cameras, lanyards, highlighters, etc instead of everything getting dropped on a flat surface ending up hard to find. The organizers make a great drop spot when you walk in the door.

We don't use ours for shoes either. We use it in the bathroom to keep the counters/shelves clear of clutter.

I use the LLBean hanging toiletry organizer. They come in various sizes. A large or x-large holds everything for the bathroom plus has room for extras like tape or scissors.

I have the same organizer and I used a coat hanger and attached the organizer to the coat hanger with bread ties, doubled them up for added weight.
